Using video marketing to drive traffic and business Nov. 16 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
YouTube for Business (I have the second edition) is a helpful book for anybody who wants to use video marketing. You can always tell a good book by the depth of its table of contents. The author of this tome, Miller, goes the extra mile to provide extensive amounts of info to his reader.

I'll touch some brief pressure points. First, I liked how Miller emphasized the need to track the performance of your videos. If you're trying to put people into your funnel then you need to know what content works and what doesn't. I also like how he gets across the versatility of video marketing. You can make several types of videos including educational and entertainment videos, it really runs the gamut. He also includes a lot of pictures pointing out specifically where things are in the various software and online accounts you may run into. On the downside, all it takes is one update and the menu displays could change.

In terms of negatives, there isn't that much. I wish he would've went into greater detail for solopreneurs (that is, people with lean operations). I also wish he would've devoted more attention to the actual process generating content for YouTube. I always have a tough time trying to repurpose content for videos so it would've been nice to discuss how this could be done. Also, some readers may be off-putted by the minutiae. In some parts, Miller goes into a lot of technical detail (such as discussing hardware and codecs) which may overwhelm the casual reader.

Aside from these points, I think it's a great book and well worth the investment.

I recommend this book to anyone wanting to create an effective youtube video. When I first put up my youtube video I wasn't dressing professional and I got bad comments, and I didn't read a sample of my book, and I didn't know how to get views. This is an excellent wonderful book. I'm reading other books on youtube and they don't even come close. With this book I wrote many notes.

This is a great book and an easy read. Doesn't just talk about YouTube but really gets into social marketing and strategies, how to utilize video marketing and goes into importance of landing pages and pay per click campaigns as well. Truely covers the thinking behind digital marketing as a whole and great intro to social.
Way Too Basic. July 18 2014
By Mr. Math Expert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Read: 7/14
Rate: 3/5

7/14: YouTube for Business is a handbook in how to get started with Youtube mainly for advertising a business. Mostly, it seems to be aimed for corporations. Personally, I didn't find anything new or significant to learn from the book; a lot of information is very obvious and can be figured out without the book once one knows that all he needs is a camera/camcorder and a video editing software. All in all, YouTube for Business is probably best for those who have never touched Youtube or, I should go further, the internet before.
